SEMPER - Secondary Malignoma - Prospective Evaluation of the Radiotherapeutic Dose Distribution as the Cause for Induction

Duration: 2013 - 2015

Funding: Oncotyrol


Based on the development of novel linear accelerator models, new radiation treatment techniques such as IMRT, IGRT and VMAT become applicable. However, radiation with minimal dose can be the reason for the induction of secondary malignancy many years afterwards. The objective of this project is to develop the platform and framework to perform a long-term (range 20 years or more) study based on the preconditions given by this new radiotherapy technology. The Research Division for eHealth and Telemedicine is responsible for requirements engineering, interface design, data integration and data modeling.
